MONTEREY, La. (AP) - Concordia Parish Sheriff’s investigators say the body of a man found late last month has been positively identified as a man who went missing in March.

The Natchez Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/1OlSR9y ) a Baton Rouge forensics lab positively identified the body as that of 26-year-old Duell Moreland of Monterey.

Chief Deputy David Hedrick said Wednesday that Moreland went missing from his grandparents’ home on March 29 and his remains were found in a bayou April 29 by his grandfather.

Meanwhile, the sheriff’s office has named a relative of Moreland’s as one of several persons of interest in the case. Hedrick says polygraph tests are being conducted and phone records are being analyzed. So far, no one has been arrested in connection with Moreland’s death.
